BrendanHollyHolly Valance and Artem Chigvintsev

Holly Valance proved she was still belle of the ballroom despite having to swap partners on last night’s Strictly Come ­Dancing. The Aussie star’s crocked ­partner Artem Chigvintsev had to pull out after suffering a serious back ­injury so fellow pro Brendan Cole, who was voted out with Lulu last week, stepped into the breach as Holly’s knight in shining ­armour.

With just four days to ­rehearse, the couple scored an impressive 34 out of 40 for their rumba, ­choreographed by ­a ­dedicated Artem from his chair.
